Transferring Your Outlook and Quickbooks Data to Mac OS X? 50

rollthelosindice asks: "I recently picked up the new 1GHZ eMac with Superdrive with the intentions of it being purely a video editing machine, but of course I changed my mind once I started using it, and wanted to import my email over from Outlook and my business accounting over from Quickbooks, however Apple's Mail can't import form Outlook, only Outlook Express. The same goes for Quickbooks, where they can only migrate over Quicken. I've tried all sorts of importing and exporting to/from different file formats (CSV, etc) to try and make it work, but there seems to be no solution other than running both machines right next to one another. I even tried VNC for a few days, but that got frustrating. Has anyone come up with a successful work around for these importing short falls? I'm sure there are others like me in this or a similar situation."

    Can Quickbooks export a QIF or OFX file? If so, you might want to look at GnuCash [] for your finance package. It takes a bit of work to get all the dependent packages taken care of, but using fink [], or fink + FinkCommander [], it's not too bad. I ended up not using the QIF import, though, and just started cold-turkey, inputting data into GnuCash. Worked fine for me.

    I can't say much for MoneyDance, the other main financial package option.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
